Take 5 with ... "Jamón"

Iria Lopez
As we gear up for the 10th anniversary Oxford Film Festival, we wanted to introduce you to the filmmakers and their films you will experience on Feb. 21-24, 2013. Meet Iria Lopez, director/writer of "Jamón."

#1: In 140 characters or less, describe your movie and why someone should see it.
"Jamón" is a hand made, traditionally animated short film. Despite the innocent, old style cartoon look, it holds an adult story narrative with a strong message. 

#2: Biggest lesson learned in getting the film made?
 It’s important to trust your crew.

Best part in getting the film made?
Watching it finished with an audience for the first time.

#3: Tell us about you. What is your movie making background?
I graduated from the animation-directing course in March. I’m currently represented as director at Picasso Pictures in London, and freelancing as an animator.

#4: What's your dream distribution plan for the film? 
I wish “Jamón” gets to be screened everywhere in the world, especially at the big festivals where many people would watch it.

#5: What does the future hold in store for your film and for you?
So far the film has got into many festivals so hopefully it will be broadly acknowledged. I will be starting a new short soon.
